Alloy 22, a nickel-based alloy that belongs to the Ni-Cr-Mo family, shows an outstanding corrosion resistance in most environments. Alloy 22 was extensively studied regarding its crevice corrosion behavior both in pure chloride solutions and in solutions containing other ions such as nitrate, sulfate, and carbonate/bicarbonate. Electrochemical tests were performed to study uniform and localized corrosion of Alloy 22 in a deaerated aqueous solution of 1 M NaCl and 1 M NaCl with different amounts of phosphate additions at 90°C and at pH near neutral. Results show that the addition of phosphate to the solution increased the length of the passive potential range. Moreover, results from two type of electrochemical tests showed that the addition of 0.3 M phosphate and higher completely eliminated the susceptibility of Alloy 22 to crevice corrosion. The excellent inhibitive effect of phosphate is comparable to that of nitrate already reported in the literature. Elemental analysis of the corroded area suggests th...

Abstract Oxyanions were tested as inhibitors of the chloride-induced crevice corrosion of Alloy 22, at 90 °C. Nitrate was the most efficient inhibitor showing R CRIT = 0.2 for the two tested chloride concentrations. Sulphate showed R CRIT values of 1 and 2 in 0.1 mol/L and 1 mol/L NaCl solutions, respectively. Carbonate showed R CRIT = 1 while bicarbonate and carbonic acid did not show any inhibiting effect. Chromate and molybdate showed R CRIT = 0.5 in 0.1 mol/L NaCl solutions being less effect...

Abstract The crevice corrosion kinetics of alloys C-22, C-22HS and HYBRID-BC1 was studied in several chloride solutions at 90 °C. The crevice corrosion resistance of the alloys increased with PREN (Pitting Resistance Equivalent Number), which is mainly affected by the Mo content in the alloys. The crevice corrosion kinetics of the three alloys was analyzed at potentials slightly higher than the repassivation potential. Crevice propagation was controlled by ohmic drop in the more dilute chloride ...

Abstract Surface analytical techniques were applied to characterize corrosion products formed during the crevice corrosion of the Ni–Cr–Mo(W) Alloy-22 in 5 mol/L NaCl at 120 °C. Micro-Raman spectroscopy demonstrated the formation of polymeric molybdates within the crevice corroded region where intergranular corrosion dominated. The location and chemical speciation of the Mo and W species formed was investigated by Raman mapping. Crevice corrosion was found to propagate preferentially across the ...

AbstractAlloy 22 (UNS N06022) belongs to the Ni–Cr–Mo family, and it is highly resistant to general and localised corrosion; however, it may suffer crevice corrosion in aggressive environmental conditions. The susceptibility to crevice corrosion is measured by the value of the repassivation potential. The objective of this work is to compare different electrochemical methods for determining the repassivation potential of alloy 22; these include cyclic potentiodynamic polarisation, Tsujikawa–Hisa...

Abstract One important factor affecting crevice corrosion of passive metals is the crevice geometry, e.g., the gap of the crevice. The crevice geometry can be affected by the properties of the materials used as the crevice formers, i.e., a polymeric crevice former can conform to the surface roughness of a metal specimen, which helps the creation of a tighter crevice gap. The objective of this work was to investigate the effects of crevice former materials on the evolution of crevice corrosion da...

The crevice corrosion performance of Alloy 22 was tested under potentiostatic polarization more positive than the repassivation potential in 4 M NaCl solution at 100°C. Under this aggressive condition, crevice corrosion initiated under the crevice contacts and four stages of corrosion behavior were observed: initiation, propagation, stifling (corrosion slowed), and arrest (corrosion stopped). During the exposure, dark green deposits were found on the uncorroded metal surface around the crevice c...

Abstract Coupling of metal oxidation in crevice corrosion to both O2 reduction on surfaces external to the crevice and H+ reduction occurring within the crevice, was studied using a galvanostatic crevice corrosion technique in conjunction with weight loss analyses. Results suggest internal H+ reduction is a significant contributor to the crevice corrosion of the studied alloys in 5 M NaCl at 120 °C. Repeat experiments suggest damage can be as much as doubled by H+ reduction. This process, howeve...

The free energy and the entropy of vapor molecule attachment are calculated by means of a bicanonical statistical ensemble using a detailed model of interactions. The nanopore has a stabilizing effect on the hydrate shell with respect to fluctuations and a destabilizing effect with respect to complete evaporation. At the b...

Nickel-based alloys are considered among other candidate materials as engineering barriers of geological repositories due to their excellent corrosion resistance. These alloys possess unique advantages: they may be used in saturated and unsaturated repositories, hosted by practically any rock type, while also compatible with any (or no) backfill, and have minimal impact in other barriers. Alloy-22 (UNS N06022) has been the most studied of this class of alloys for its potential application in the...

There are a great variety of commercial nickel alloys mainly because nickel is able to dissolve a large amount of alloying elements while maintaining a single ductile austenitic phase. Nickel alloys are generally designed for and used in highly aggressive environments, for example, those where stainless steels may experience pitting corrosion or environmentally assisted cracking. While nickel alloys are generally resistant to pitting corrosion in chloride-containing environments, they may be pro...
